    It's kind of a mixed thing. Some don't bother with musket caps. I'm one of those, because I don't have a problem with ignition on sidelocks. Sometimes musket caps are harder to find than #11 caps, and I heard a rumor that musket caps aren't as hot as they used to be, but you know how rumors are.

    Conversion kit is ordered! Think I will get both and try them out. Now I have to look into ML hunts around here! Havent considered them much before since my ML wasnt legal here. This opens up all kinds of new possibilities!!!

    I wish I knew that before you ordered. You don't need musket caps with that gun. They were made for sidelocks. You're better off with #11 caps. They will give you less of a crud ring, and the musket cap won't give you any better ignition, but more crud ring. a 209 primer will give you even more of a crud ring. See the pattern? Hotter ignition. More crud ring.

    What to you mean by crud ring? I have never had any problems with 209's other then they are not legal here. The conversion kit comes with nipples for #11 and musket caps so I can use either.
